Special KK+ Challenge

During our trip to Vancouver, B.C., our friend Kris challenged himself (and me) to eat better during the month of June, in a continuing effort to become better people. here is the checklist he came up with, and we agreed upon.

I think that no bacon is going to be hard, but we agreed if bacon is in a healthy salad dressing, or the cheese is feta, blue or of the goat variety, it would probably be o.k.

I’m also going to get working out a bit more, including more walks (which I’ve been taking, much to the detriment of my professional tasks), and really abstain from the gift of that Barley Bree as much as possible too.

Wish me luck!

Chris Pirillo’s Italian Shoes

I don’t know a Bruno Magli from a Mama Mia! when it comes to shoe fashions, but whilst recently enjoying a session at Podcast Hotel 3 in San Francisco, I noticed that Chris Pirillo of Lockergnome and Gnomedex (who was broadcasting live on hit ustream feed) was wearing shows that looked so stylish, I’d think to only see them on Adam Curry. You tell me? Are these fancy Italian shoes, or cheap dollar store “hide of nauga“?

Go Vote For My Photo, Please?

JPG Magazine: Photos: “Bridge Sky” by Jacob Stewart



It’s always good when a closeted artist gets some encouragement about their work. I was able to receive a few of those achievments in the last few weeks. As I was in San Francisco for Podcast Hotel 3 in April, I got an e-mail from a publisher (Hyperion) that wanted to publish one of my photos in a book about learning Latin. I only get attribution, not remuneration, but still, it makes you feel good people are looking, and want to include my small contributions to their Opus or artistic work of other sort. That same week, JPG Magazine had a gallery opening in San Francisco, so I was able to attend. One of my other photos was being displayed, in a montage (of sorts) [I’m sure DaveO will point out that I contrived a way to use the word “montage” on my blog, but I digress.]It’s not like I’ve never gotten any recognition, I’ve had pictures published in a national magazine for money, written a monthly article for my local newspaper, and been honored as an up-and-coming business leader, but still, somehow, being appreciated for what you create, rather than what you are, fills a different and somehow more fulfilling need.

So, if you want to help me in my quest toward self-actualization, please click on the photo above, and vote for it. If I get enough votes, and the editors of JPG Magazine like it enough, it’ll get published, and I’ll get a few bucks.
